vege oil 40g 
sugar 60g
milk 20g 
egg yolks 4 
egg whites 4

Mash the bananas.
Microwave the oil for 1 min. Add in the sifted flour into the oil. Mix well. 
Add in the milk and the egg yolks. Mix well. 
Add in the mashed bananas and combine well. 
Prepare the meringue. Add sugar to the egg whites and beat until soft peak.
Add 1/3 of the egg white to the yolk batter. 
Add to the remaining egg white and fold well. 
Pour into the 6″ round cake tin.

Sweet Potato Chiffon Cake

My first bake in SEPT!  

I just found out that he loves to eat sweet potato with rice and porridge. So I decided to bake a simple sweet potato chiffon cake for Ian’s birthday.

After resting from baking for so long, I was so lazy to do buttercream which was my preference. So I did chantilly cream which is easier to prepare. Zann said she prefer not to eat the cream.

I think the orange sweet potato taste much better than the purple ones.
